  • ViewSonic is aiming to shake-up the Ultra HD projector market – in the US, at least - with the announcement of the sub $1,500 PX727-4K model, scheduled for release in February 2018.
    This addition to the company’s line of digital projectors is part of the new PX Series for home entertainment and high-impact multimedia

    With the PX727-4K, ViewSonic is bringing the industry’s most innovative technologies and 4K resolution to a wider range of consumers

    The ViewSonic PX727-4K delivers colour reproduction through XPR technology, which provides an 8.3-million-pixel image on the screen. The PX727-4K is HDR (High Dynamic Range)-compatible with open standard HDR, and offers both Rec. 709 and Rec. 2020 compatibility and DCI-P3 coverage for a wide colour gamut, although actual details of coverage weren’t provided. With an exclusive SuperColor six-segment RGBRGB colour wheel, the PX727-4K promises a broad colour spectrum and good saturation.

    ViewSonic claims the PX727 provides 2200 lumens of brightness and a contrast of 12,000:1. There’s also a built-in 10W speaker, a 1.2x optical zoom and versatile connectivity options, including HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2, HDMI 1.4/HDCP1.4, VGA In/Out, USB 2.0, Audio In/Out, RS232 and a 12V trigger. The projector also features an energy-saving SuperEco function that reduces power consumption and extends the lamp life to up to 15,000 hours.

    With the PX727-4K, ViewSonic is bringing the industry’s most innovative technologies and 4K resolution to a wider range of consumers,” said Sean Liu, product marketing manager for ViewSonic Americas. “With our award-winning projector line, from short-throw interactive to 1080p home theater laser projectors, ViewSonic is continuing our mission to provide the widest range of high performance projector solutions. The launch of the PX727-4K projector is the next step in delivering a future-proof 4K immersive viewing experience at a consumer-ready price point. We want users to enjoy their multimedia content on a big screen with the best resolution possible.”
